Photomontages are multiple images artfully combined. When joined together, they assume a new and more complex definition that, if done well, is both believable and aesthetically thrilling. Imagine fresh laundry taking flight from a clothes dryer, a woman posed inside a perfume bottle, or a triptych that shows the play of light and shadow over the facade of a building at different times during the day. In "Creating Photomontages with Photoshop: A Designer's Notebook" (Rodarmor, O'Reilly, US $24.95) well-known French artists reveal the techniques used in creating these and other projects.

Translated from French into English for the first time, this lavish collection of groundbreaking digital creations is a visual smorgasbord for digital imaging professionals, graphic artists, photographers, and anyone involved in the creation of digital images or animations. But the book provides more than a full-color feast for the eyes; it gives intermediate-to-advanced Photoshop users invaluable guidance through all aspects of photomontage creation. From the genesis of each project (including sources of inspiration, assignment specifications, working with an art director) to its practical execution (photo shoot, retouching steps, special effects), the authors provide step-by-step instructions on the entire process.

The stunning digital photomontages in "Creating Photomontages with Photoshop: A Designer's Notebook" offer a challenging and beautiful glimpse into a vibrant culture known for pushing the limits of imagination with photography, graphics, and art. Filled with splendor, energy, and creative risks, the images will change the way you see and perform your own work. This book will take you to the heart of what's possible with photomontage and digital technology through Photoshop. It is suitable for your coffee table or your desktop--wherever you most thrive on creative inspiration.

"Creating Photomontages with Photoshop: A Designer's Notebook" is the third release in O'Reilly's new Designer's Notebook series--a series designed to inspire and instruct professionals who work with digital images. The first two books in the series are "Photo Retouching with Photoshop: A Designer's Notebook" and "Illustrations with Photoshop: A Designer's Notebook."
